(ru) wrote: what fucking one-eyed monster?! I was expecting a cyclops but its just a dumb but abelt funny tale about a 9.35 inch dick possessed by creatures from outer space , ripped itself out of its owner's crotch, and commiting bloodbaths in order to spawn. or just to kill.
(gb) wrote: A captivating plot line that was let down slightly by it's timing and scene progression. The opening of the movie was carried off wonderfully, but seemed more professional than the footage that followed it afterwards. The acting was done well, nothing astounding but not corny or unbelievable. Not amazing, but still, in concerns to a quick thrill and classic J-horror theme, it does alright for itself.

(es) wrote: Great movie. Though it feels a little overlong in moments, the movie has quite the captivating pace thanks to its stylish direction, phenomenal writing, fun characters and great performances from its cast, especially Forster, Grier, Jackson and De Niro.

(mx) wrote: Perhaps the worst movie that I have ever seen. Not only was it boring, it was also stupid.
(de) wrote: OMG! This is so awesomely bad. Some kind of weird marriage of Tod Browning's Freaks and mad scientist movies. The mad scientist is Donald Pleasence! Oh, and it has Tom Baker from Doctor Who in it, which means, like, the "one of us" update moment is the greatest thing ever.
(br) wrote: This film would never get made today. At least not with intents this transparent. It serves to glorify Elvis Presley and his embodiment. But back in 1964, these types of B-movies were just accepted. Nowadays teen cinema consists of a post-apocalyptic love triangle. Much more realistic. Not quite as blatant.Elvis plays Lucky, a race car driver who's in Las Vegas to compete in the Vegas Grand Prix. He needs a new engine but is strapped for cash due to contrived reasons. He falls for Rusty (Ann-Margret) who seems to be abruptly against his racing ways.This movie is all over the place. About halfway through it becomes disjointed, making it obvious what its purpose is. For a pointless, plotless story, it's way too convoluted. For an 84 minute film, it takes its sweet time, attempting to thin itself out to cover the short runtime. But then, once it realizes it's home free, the story progresses ridiculously fast and things never get resolved. Elvis and Ann-Margret have undeniable chemistry, but their depth is almost non-existent. Lucky's motivations are unclear, and Rusty goes from a likable, independent worker woman at the beginning of the film to an incompetent bimbo by the end. The songs and dance numbers are impressively catchy, but that's all this movie is. The few glamorous Las Vegas shots are nice, but there aren't nearly enough in a movie with the city's name in the title. It almost seems like a blown opportunity to make a cool story about gambling or mobsters. Instead, it's about racing--something few of us think of when talking about Vegas.It's a dated movie, but that's perhaps the best thing this film has to offer. There are some cool shots of the Vegas of yesteryear. There's one in particular showing the front of the Flamingo as it used to be--alone, with nothing on either side. Contrastingly, we get a shot of Fremont Street in all its garish glory--busy and crowded, sans the 1,500 foot canopy movie screen overhead. While watching this, my fiance turns to me and says, "You used to be able to drive down Fremont Street???" My, how things have changed.Twizard Rating: 57
